Typically, I Google "good songs to run to" and I get lots of playlists full of, you guessed it, good songs to run to. So then I go to the website, and I scroll down the list, and I see nothing I like! Or, I see things I like, and then I visualize myself running to them, and they just don't fit.
Which has led me to this conclusion: I have terrible taste in music.
I guess I'd describe my musical taste as: mostly country mixed with mainstream pop and easy listening, a few hip-hop/rap songs, and then the occasional burst of Billy Joel and/or the Eagles.
In other words: full of guilty pleasures. Only I guess they can't really be called guilty pleasures if they all fall into that category, right?
Essentially, I listen to songs that make me want to either sing or dance along while I'm running. And they've gotta make me smile.
So, for those of you who share my musical leanings and are looking for a playlist you'd actually like to work out to, here's what I ran to today. Enjoy:
What Doesn't Kill You/Kelly Clarkson
Live a Little/Kenny Chesney
It Girl/Jason Derulo
Hey Mama/Mat Kearney
Work Out/J. Cole
Storm Warning/Hunter Hayes
She's Like Texas/Josh Abbott Band
Rock & Roll/Eric Hutchinson
Only the Good Die Young/Billy Joel
Call Me Maybe/Carly Rae Jepsen
...and now you know why if you see me out running, I probably look like I'm dancing and/or playing the air drums with my fingers. I'm okay with it.
